I'm going to try it,, I understand it cooks up like rice. A guy at work went on a diet and eats this twice a day, as his snack at work. He has lost 95 lbs, as well as exercise in one year.
This is supposed to be very high in protein as well as other nutrients that are exceptionally high in this grain.
His wife cooks it in chicken stock and adds diced onion. She said it's good in salads as well.
If any of you have eaten it and cooks it, please let me know. I'm trying to find good choice food substitutes with high nutritional value,, all suggestions welcome, I Need HELP lol

I think it has the most protein of any grain around. Never tried it but keep saying I'm going too. Let us know.

Yes, or you can soak the quinoa in a jar much as you would beans and then pour the water off through cheesecloth or a clean dish towel? This is what I did. It is good just a different shape after soaking/cooking. Both times I cooked mine in a rice cooker. And served much like fried rice.
